The Greening of Southie
What happens when you’re asked to build the city of tomorrow… today? Set on the storied streets of South Boston, THE GREENING OF SOUTHIE is a feature documentary about Boston’s first residential green building, and the men and women who set out to construct it.
From wheatboard cabinetry to recycled steel, bamboo flooring to dual-flush toilets, The Macallen Building is something different––a leader in the emerging field of environmentally friendly design. But green building has its challenges, and the jobsite has its skeptics. And when things start to go wrong, a young developer has to keep the project from unraveling. Funny and poignant, The Greening of Southie is a story of bold ideas, new environmentalists, and the future of urban America. From the creators of KING CORN.
Directors Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis. 82 mins, NR.
